Food Pantry

Food Pantry

At Onward Neighborhood House, we try to bring simple benefits to our families like healthy, well balanced meals. Through a partnership with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, we have recently opened a client-choice food pantry across the street from our Belmont Cragin center at St. Peter’s United Church of Christ.

The food pantry is be client-choice, so visitors to the food pantry will be able to select items from different “food stations,” and shop like at a supermarket. Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc. generously donated 10 shopping carts for clients to use while shopping at the food pantry. Each food station will be different, and may include fruits, vegetables, dairy, frozen meats, bread and grains and breakfast foods.

The “client-choice” opportunity will provide more freedom and dignity to the food pantry process, said Onward Neighborhood House’s Executive Director, Mario Garcia. Clients will be able to select their products, much like shopping at a small neighborhood grocer. As demand increases, Onward Neighborhood House anticipates increasing the food pantry’s availability to twice a week.

The pantry will be open from 4 – 6 p.m. on Thursdays. The pantry is located in the basement of St. Peter’s Church, 2805 N. Linder Avenue.
